The trip so far


I visited Nationals Park on Wednesday night and watched the Nats throttle the Cardinals (who I suppose we now have to view as a rival for the division lead...  Go Nats! (heh-heh, I said "gonads"...)).  It was 10-0 and it really wasn't that close.  Michael Morse hit a couple bombs - one of which wasn't too far from where I was sitting in the left field bleachers - and Albert Pujols looked pretty awful at 3B.  He had two errors in the game and a couple other throws that required some yeoman's work from Berkman.  I didn't get to explore the stadium very much because I was there with a couple friends from the area who I hadn't seen in several years, but I'll be going back two weeks from today when the Pirates are in town.

Yesterday, I drove to Charleston to see the WV Power.  Just as a disclaimer, I have little to no scouting skills, so take that into consideration for the rest of this paragraph.  Colton Cain was pitching and he looked fairly effective - he didn't dominate, but I didn't see more than 2 or 3 very hard-hit balls off of him.  Drew Maggi had some good ABs that led to a couple hits.  Rojas made one very nice running catch on a blast that looked to surely be over his head - he also added a stolen base at some point.  The game was called in the 7th due to rain, but I enjoyed the Toast Man and some of the other local flavor...

After today, the next five days will all involve the Bucs or their affiliates (Cleveland, Altoona, State College - where Allie will apparently be starting - and then Pittsburgh for back-to-back games).  I'll do my best to relay some of my experiences when I have time.  Until then, Go Bucs!
